Another look at the Bridgeport Reservoir, and another look directly into the sun, as per my earlier Mono Lake photograph. The seagull was a fortuitous addition to the scene. The landscape looked completely different to my eye. I could see detail and color not visible here. Yet it's that abstraction of information that I think makes this photograph work. Experience, in fact, taught me that I could make an image more abstract than realistic, and experience taught me it would please my aesthetic sensibility.
